My husband and I planned to add on a couple of days to a conference in San Francisco. Stayed two nights at this hotel. The area is more bedroom community than destination site and we had to drive about an hour but it fit our needs to a T. Hot tub and pool were nice, guest laundry small but they... More

We've stayed here several times over the past few years and our latest visit was, if anything, better than before. Definitely recommend, even though I think their prices have gone up a bit. Note for the future, a commuter train line is set to start running right next to the hotel property in 2015. Could be noisy.

We had a free Marriott night coming, and decided to give this property a try. Good choice on our part. It is a little "off the beaten path" -- set back far enough from freeway and main roads to be QUIET. I actually slept well, which usually never happens on a 1-night trip and/or the 1st night out. Everything looked... More

My wife and I were on a three week road trip starting in Southern California up to Portland Oregon, and then down the coast back home over a three week time frame. Mainly we stayed at another chain hotel for the entire trip, but it was not available in Novato, so we chose the Courtyard. I get a sizable corporate... More

This is not the fanciest hotel, sleeping rooms are just OK, lobby is kind of nice, looks recently renovated and is modern and bright. Amenities are minimal. What really made our stay though was the staff...consistently friendly on every level. It is also nicely situated, with a Safeway just behind it.

This hotel is perfectly located to go north or northeast into Sonoma County or south into San Francisco or Berkeley areas. Being on the run all day, it was wonderful returning to this hotel. There are restaurants within walking distance as well as a grocery store. The small refrigerator was perfect for snacks and beverages we wanted cooled. The small... More

A very pleasant experience at this Courtyard. The staff is friendly, helpful and courteous. The property is well maintained and immaculately clean. I recommend it highly and will be staying there again on my next visit to the Bay area.

Check-in was efficient. The Lobby was done up in appealing colours. Ample parking space outside, although some patches were unlit and get quite dark. Several dining options in the vicinity. Our rooms were spacious and clean, as were the bathrooms. Beds were comfortable; we had a good night's rest. Gym was adequate. ATM machine in the lobby debited my card... More

We have decided that we don’t like the Courtyard by Marriott brand. We like to have breakfast included in our room price and it is not at Courtyard by Marriott. Also we like to have a microwave and Courtyard by Marriott does not have them in the rooms. A 50¢ charge for local calls is annoying. The Internet included in... More

Thank you for your review and for staying with us. First I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations.

The staff in the area where they serve drinks and food were excellent. Upon checking out I found my car covered in water from an errant sprinkler.
